Title: Only a Viscount Will Do
Series: To Marry a Rogue
Author: Tamara Gill
Genre: Historical (Regency) Romance
Release Date: May 22, 2017
Lady Alice Worthingham never conforms to Society’s norms. Ever. She loves adventure, new experiences, and approaches life with a sassy attitude Society can take or leave. But even for her, robbery by a highwayman is a bit much.
Lord Arndel, Lady Alice’s neighbor, is playing a dangerous game—acting the proper viscount by day and the Surrey Bandit by night. And to brazenly steal from the woman who’s captured his attention is no mean feat, or the wisest of moves.
When Lady Alice learns the truth, the viscount finds that when a well-bred woman seeks revenge, she’ll make a gentleman thief pay for his crimes with everything…including his heart.

She pulled back and stepped out of his arms altogether. Callum let her go with regret and consoled himself with the fact that her eyes looked heavy with desire and, if he wasn’t incorrect, a little awe. “I shouldn’t have done that.” “Why not?” He shrugged, the action in some way releasing his taut muscles. “You’re not worried about your reputation, are you? I thought you were a highwaywoman and nothing else.” “I am, but I’m also a woman who should not have done that.” “Are you a woman of rank?” Callum watched are her eyes darkened in warning. He smirked. “Preferably, I would like you to come back here and do it again.” Her mouth opened on a gasp, and he strode up to her, clasped her face, and kissed her hard, quick, and deep, before pulling back and bowing. “I hope we see each other again.” Alice nodded and walking over to her horse in what looked like a daze, mounted quickly, and joined her sister. “I’m sure we will, Lord Arndel, and sooner than you’d like, if you continue this type of thieving lifestyle. Do I make myself clear?” “Very,” he said, watching as the women turned their mounts and cantered down the road before turning into the trees. Callum swore, running a hand through his hair. For all his teasing of the little minx, she’d still run off with his portable blunt and now he would have to send word to London and notify those his deceased cousin owed money to, that the debt would not be paid. Not with the jewels that had been required, at least. Damn it!

My 5 Star Review This is my first book to have read by Tamara Gill and even though this is book three in the (To Marry a Rogue) series it can be read as a standalone. As soon as I started reading this story I loved her style of writing so much that I read this book in one sitting. Im a big fan of historical romance and I especially love it when the heroine is the one who comes in and saves the day and Lady Alice Worthingham was an amazingly strong woman with a clever mind that never lets anyone get one up on her and she is a very kind and caring soul that helps those in need and the poor who live in the nearby village. She is a character that I warmed to easily and liked her very much for her strong sensibilities and compassion toward others. Lord Callum Arndel also know as the Surrey Bandit is a charming and handsome rogue that is forced into the life of crime to pay off debts left from the previous Viscount, as he was brought up without wealth and status because his mother was disowned by the family for marrying for love and beneath her status he cant afford to pay them. Callum knows that what he is doing is wrong but has no other choice but to protect his young daughter from the threats of the moneylender by doing their bidding until the debts are paid. He knows that there is a strong attraction between Lady Alice and himself but he also knows that she is above his status and it could never be if she found out who his pseudonym is, so at first he tries to distance himself from her but neither of them can fight the spark and chemistry that they have going on between them. Lord Arndel's character is one I could easily fall in love with, he is a handsome and caring man that is passionate about trying to put things right by doing the right thing and for being the fearless protector that he is. This story is an exciting mix of action, romance and adventure that has a little of everything that includes highway robbery at gunpoint, a beautiful ball to introduce the new Viscount into society and a dark and seedy endeavour in the back streets of London. This book will thrill you and excite you and the sexual tension and romance will set your heart on fire. I look forward to reading many more stories from this very talented author if they live up to the quality of this book. An amazing 5 Stars!
